When life leaves us blind, Love keeps us kind.


Where do I turn when you’re gone?
Because I know where you’ve been,
The little façade is tearing,
Your excuses wearing thin;

All the times you swore you loved me,
When you tucked me into bed,
Scaring off all of the demons,
That were screaming in my head;

But, oh, if only I had known,
That your words were untrue,
But I was young and far too naïve,
So I foolishly believed you;

If there’s one thing that’s certain,
It’s that I’ll never really know,
Exactly why you stood by my side,
All the times I cried alone;

For well over twenty one years,
And the sixteen of my own,
You were there, you stayed,
In this Hell we played, home;

Thank you so much! :) I've been trying with my more recent poetry to step out of my comfort zone with rhyme schemes to try some that aren't so normal and see how it would work for me. I really appreciate the feedback!

If there was no change, there would be no butterflies.

The rhyming scheme here is what initially caught me, and really is beautifully crafted. It has such a rhythm that is masterfully done. The subject matter is also very well done. Thank you! :)
